3 rob Zombie Liv­ing Dead Girl(hell­Billy Deluxe, 1998)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

While the song it­self is a ver­i­ta­ble smor­gas­bord of hor­ror ref­er­ences, in­clud­ing nods to Lady Franken­stein (1971), Daugh­ters Of Dark­ness (1971) and The Last House On The Left (1972), it’s per­haps the video for the track that fea­tures the most ob­vi­ous trib­ute, com­ing straight from the showreel of one of cin­ema’s first hor­ror mas­ter­pieces, 1920’s The Cabi­net Of Dr Cali­gari. rob him­self is cast as the tit­u­lar Doc­tor, along­side wife and fre­quent col­lab­o­ra­tor Sheri Moon Zombie in the role of the liv­ing Dead Girl in a glo­ri­ously daft, black and white ode to hor­ror’s ear­li­est days.

CHOICE LYRIC: “Crawl on me / Sink into me / Die for me / Liv­ing dead girl”

rob Zombie: or is it Dr cali­gari?
